Have your say on the Federal Government?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢s Strategic Contemporary Music Industry Plan

19 May 2010During the 2007 election, a number of commitments to support Australia?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢s contemporary music industry were made, including the development of a Strategic Contemporary Music Industry Plan to enhance continued cooperation within the industry.

Minister for Environmental Protection, Heritage and the Arts, Peter Garrett has announced an invitation for comment on the Department’s draft Strategic Contemporary Music Industry Plan. This draft has been developed in consultation with key stakeholders and relevant Government agencies, and highlights five key areas for action, including enhancing industry cooperation; increasing exposure of Australian music and fostering live music performances; boosting music industry exports; improving training and skills development; and building business capability and innovation.

The discussion paper can be viewed here.

Music Victoria is drafting a submission and invites all Victorian musicians, industry parties and music lovers to view the plan and email Music Victoria at with your ideas and comments which we will then compile. Have your say in the support and future direction of contemporary music in Victoria.
